So you want the public IP address that your Netopia router is getting to do a 1 to 1 NAT to the private IP address 192.168.1.136? Basically you want to bypass any of the firewall restrictions of the router?

The caveat with this configuration is that if you don't have any other public IP addresses for the actual Netopia router to use then all other devices on your network will now longer be able to access the internet through the router. Only if you have a public IP address that you can assign the router will it be able provide NAT and internet access to the rest of your network.

The 192.168.1.0 network is not routable on the public network. You need your entire network to NAT through your router using a public IP address.

You configuration will work if the Netopia router will allow a 1 to 1 NAT to another node on the network and allow NAT'ing for the rest of your private network concurrently. Of course you need at least (2) public IP addresses in the same subnet as well.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need better clarification.

I do not know how to change my NAT setting to open on Xbox Live


First of all I would just like to cover the basics of strict and moderate NAT settings. For those interested, NAT stands for Network Address Translation and is used to prevent problems with information being sent over a shared network.
With the XBOX 360, Microsoft have defined three categories of NAT. These are:

1. Strict
2. Moderate
3. Open

You can see the NAT level for your XBOX Live connection by going into your
1. System blade
2. Network Settings
3. Test Xbox Live Connection


For you question on how to open your NAT setting follow the steps below:


1. Type the IP address of your router in a web browser.
2. It will prompt you for a user name and password once connected
3. After logging in you will have a control panel of setting up different settings in your router.
4. The IP address, and default user name/password are different on every route
Note: 192.168.1.1 is a pretty common address for most routers.
5. Check the manual that came with your router for that info.

I also provided a few links below of password lists of different routers.

Xbox live


Hello!

Yes, the netopia router will work with xbox live. you just have to configure some settings on your router.

To configure your router for Xbox Live try the following steps below:

step 1: Open an Internet Explorer page. in address bar type your router ip address, That should take you to the Netopia's settings page
Step 2: On the menu to left click Firewall, set it to Low and Save Changes
Step 3: On the menu to left click Expert Mode, then Yes, enter Expert Mode
Step 4: On the menu to left click Configure, then Advanced, then NAT
Step 5: Where it says Service Name, scroll the list down to Xbox Live Games, click Enable and then Enable again
Step 6: On the menu to left click Configure, then Connection.
Step 7: In main page scroll down to the UPnP and put a check in the box. then Save

It should then restart the Netopia, and when it comes back on in a few seconds your XBOX LIVE should be good to go. If you are still experiencing problems accessing Xbox Live your Netopia may require a firmware upgrade.
